Update for international students

Attendance obligations for the remainder of the academic year 2022/23:

As International students, studying in the UK on a student visa, you will be aware of your requirements under the terms of your student visa which are set by the UK Government.  The University, as your “sponsor” also has a number of requirements placed upon it - and together, the student and the University, we must follow these requirements so that you can continue to study in the UK.

One of these requirements is that international students must be on campus throughout the published semester dates this includes Assessment Support Weeks and Assessment Weeks.  During each of these weeks, the University ensures international students are given at least two opportunities to register their attendance on campus for academic or academic-related activities.  We use a variety of methods to register engagement and attendance – including the My Attendance App on your phone.  This helps both you and the University to meet the visa requirements.

Semester 2 ends on Friday 23 June 2023 – and in each week until 23 June we will continue to support your visa requirements by asking you to register your attendance every week.  This includes the “assessment / examination weeks” and that is regardless of whether some or all of those examinations are taking place in person, or not.

Please note this message does not apply to students studying Pre-sessional English at the Birmingham International Academy.
